The Purpose of Mentorship at Westwood
The purpose of mentorship is to build a relationship focused on learning, growing, and networking. It is a partnership where guidance is provided by a mentor who has the knowledge, education, experience, and resources to share with the mentee as they explore new careers, new skills, and/or life goals. Mentorship is a two-way street where mentors can often learn from their mentees through the process too.
